The Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree with a concentration in General Business is designed for students who want to take a more holistic approach to business and impact organizations’ operations across multiple functional areas.  It is also perfect for students who know they want a career in business but need a chance to explore the various business majors offered at YCP.  The General Business curriculum covers a broad range of business disciplines while exposing students to opportunities to do hands-on work with local organizations.  General Business majors can customize their path, and gain a deeper understanding of a field of their choice, by selecting a minor from all the options available at YCP.  Graduates of this program are prepared for a variety of positions where their breadth of knowledge is useful, including store manager, account manager, consultant, or sales, to name a few.
